HOW
CAN I MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
Institute Consistent Practices
Communicate Verbally and Visually
Educate, reinforce…educate some more
Celebrate the ‘internal’ customer
Have uniforms or at least name tags for all
staff
Have a consistent signature line in all
emails and ensure accurate and complete
email signatures
(with full numbers and phone extensions separated)
Use Google Translate on your website
Always acknowledge the customer
when they arrive or are waiting
Make eye contact when you talk
Address customers by name
‘Did that help’ – ‘Did that address your
question?’
Say “My Pleasure” instead of “No Problem”
Invest in your internal customers
Provide on-going opportunities for training and development
in person and online
